About Humberston

This is a typical North East Lincolnshire Wolds town. It is also a coastal resort town with chalet parks reminiscent of the 1950's. Off coast visitors can see the two Sand Forts built at the mouth of the Humber river to defend the coast from attack. Both Haile and Bull Sand Forts were built in 1915. Constructed of concrete, they stand on sandbanks, a short distance away from each other in the middle of the river towards Spurn Head. Bull Fort at 50 feet above sea level is the largest of the two. The forts were used for active service and submarines patrolled between the two during World War II to guard the Humber. However, they were disbanded in 1956 and are now believed to be in private hands.

The region has long been a favourite haunt of holidaymakers, it has long stretches of beautiful sands, ideal for sunbathing and for watching the to and fro' of the shipping lanes. The sea is good for sailing and is popular for other sea-sports. Humberston is somewhat quieter than neighboring Cleethorpes, it has a lovely conservation area, some pleasant shops, inns and fish 'n' chips. There is much here to keep the whole family occupied including Pleasure Island, a family theme park with fun for everyone. It is quite easy to spend a whole day here, there is music, lights, entertainment and rides. For the energetic there is a challenging golf course built on luxurious green parkland, with far reaching views over the surrounding landscape.

Visitors will find plenty to do, you can simply enjoy the ambience of the town, its lovely sea and coastal views or take a trip into Grimsby, famed for its fishing heritage, where you will find a museum recalling the "hey-day" of the regions fishing fleet, and its social history and heritage.
